Hello, Gabi san,
Much in small things -- I like the humor, and the uplifting moment in everyday drudgery.

I too like the humor in this everyday event. Perhaps my mind isn't spiritual enough to notice these things. Good one!

It's a gem, Gabi. I too have watched little soap bubbles as they float upwards, lasting much longer than the big ones.
It's adds, knowing that this one came in a horrible week of typhoons. That connection to won't last, of course, but it makes the poem special right now.
